It seems that the November shellacking that the people put on the liberals was short lived.

Because they are all liberals.

At least most of them are.

Here are the 25 House Republicans who voted against John Boehner to retain his speakership, and who they voted for (courtesy of the Washington Post):

Here’s the full list, in order:

Rep. Justin Amash (Mich.) — Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio)

Rep. Brian Babin (Tex.) — “present”

Rep. Rod Blum (Iowa) — Rep. Dan Webster (R-Fla.)

Rep. Dave Brat (Va.) — Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.)

Rep. Jim Bridenstine (Okla.) — Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.)

Rep. Curt Clawson (Fla.) — Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.)

Rep. Scott DesJarlais (Tenn.) — Jordan

Duncan — Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.)

Rep. Scott Garrett (N.J.) — Webster

Rep. Chris Gibson (N.Y.) — House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.)

Rep. Paul Gosar (Ariz.) — Webster

Gohmert — Gohmert

Rep. Tim Huelskamp (Kan.) — Webster

Rep. Walter Jones (N.C.) — Webster

Rep. Steve King — Webster

Rep. Tom Massie (Ky.) — Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.)

Rep. Mark Meadows (N.C.) — Webster

Rep. Rich Nugent (Fla.) — Webster

Rep. Gary Palmer (Ala.) — Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.)

Rep. Bill Posey (Fla.) — Webster

Rep. Scott Rigell (Va.) — Webster

Rep. Marlin Stutzman (Ind.) — Webster

Rep. Randy Weber (Tex.) — Gohmert

Webster — Webster

Yoho — Yoho

Brian Babin’s vote of “present” is not a ringing endorsement of his opposition to John Boehner. I would hesitate to give any credit to Babin.

I had to go through the list twice this morning to make sure my eyes hadn’t failed me. Where is Trey Gowdy?

Do not be concerned.

Trey Gowdy missed his flight and couldn’t be there for the vote.

The Blaze reports:

Rep. Trey Gowdy missed his flight to Washington Tuesday morning, but said he would have voted to re-elect John Boehner as speaker, despite an effort underway by some conservative members to oust him.

“A canceled flight, due to weather, from South Carolina to Washington this morning regrettably prevented me from being in Washington for today’s speaker vote,” Gowdy said in a statement. ”Had our flight not been canceled, I would have voted for our conference nominee, John Boehner.”

*Emphasis added

Let me ask you a question America.

Do you still think that Trey Gowdy is the answer?

The truth hurts sometimes.

We have been screwed again. How long are we willing to take it?

How many of us will “regroup” and chant the same old worn out mantras of “turning it red” in 2016?

If we don’t start learning from our mistakes, and subsequent defeats, then the people have no chance to reclaim this country. If it doesn’t work then we need to do something that does.
